Kundalini

Definition of Kundalini

Kundalini is latent energy believed to be coiled at the base of the spine. Kundalini also refers to a system of meditation that is designed to release this energy. When people have a kundalini awakening more prana (chi) is held in and runs through their nervous system. It is said that yoga can unblock the energy from the root chakra and let it travel up the spine to allow you to connect with your soul and super consciousness. Yogi Bhajan started Kundalini Yoga in the West after becoming a master at age 17 in India. This type of yoga was originally called Raj or Laya yoga and was passed down from one guru to another.

TERM OF THE DAY

Sun Sign

Your Sun sign is the sign of the zodiac where the Sun was at the time you were born. In astrology, it makes up one-third of your primal triad. In your natal chart, the Sun represents your personality and countenance. This is why more importance is placed on it than on the other planets and features, and why your daily horoscope is written for your Sun sign. There are 12 signs of the zodiac, each one with its own attributes and qualities. Since the Sun is in a particular sign when you were born, your personality will reflect many of that sign's traits.
